Rep. Louis Gohmert goes a little bit (OK, maybe a lot) nuts when asked by Anderson Cooper to provide evidence for the claim he made on the House floor that terror-babies are infiltrating the U.S.
I would just like to point out that it wouldn't matter much whether or not a terrorist had U.S. citizenship. One wouldn't have to be a citizen, of course, to be in the country for extended periods of time. Nor does citizenship protect one from being surveilled by the DHS. So it seems Gohmert's "loophole" argument is instead against the 14th amendment, which, as we've seen, many Republicans are in favor of altering. Not for fear of terrorist babies, but rather to strip citizenship from the innocent babies of undocumented immigrants (for, axiomatically, they had no part in any scheme). Punish the children for the sins of their fathers (which is not without biblical precedent, it should be said - it's right there in the decalogue).
However, the motive here is so clearly to scare the credulous into reactionary voting. That Rep. Gohmert was a judge and yet shows so much irritation at the presumption that he should provide evidence for such a claim is deeply troubling.
